Innovation and Tech Diplomacy

While listening through some of the speeches on the Rise of Techplomacy, it reminded me of the initial policy deliberations in 1996 while forming the then APEC Young Entrepreneurs Assn in line during the APEC ministerial meetings where we represented the Youth and Young Entrepreneurs in the Business Advisory Council.

At that time we talked about Innovation Centers for Young Entrepreneurs venturing then with the internet and it’s future. We wanted to develop a mechanism of sharing information and research which will benefit future business leaders.

Two decades after at the onset of the Millennium Age driven tech and business leaders, I’m amazed that the innovative Swiss and Expats in the Bay Area talks about Techplomacy. On the speakers dialogues explained the existence of the foreign consulates initiatives outside the typical passports and the like towards gearing focus on Techplomacy new research and innovations.

With our own branded websites at ADLE International for example were making sure we are in compliance with the EU Cookie policy. We have also seen the social media traffic fluctuations we got right after the recent Cambridge Analytica case scrutinized affecting online interactions.

I guess part of the Techplomacy involves also the discussions on Privacy as it affects diplomacy especially as this specific case involved a national election. Personally. I’m happy that this era has trended as I thought our initial discussions then in 1996 died through these years. However in today’s mobile news I believe I’m sort of still in touch if ever there’s something relative to the topic. After all these are the topics I’ve advocate through my young entrepreneur years then.

Even back then although we give a general consent when we give our personal data to then pledging internet companies, before its shared to a 3rd party for whatever purpose there should be another disclosure or consent before implementation. So for our websites for example like Affordable Book Deals the best is not to share any information outside of us and neither do we retain any information. Our merchant processors have to go through their extensive PCI compliance and their secured gateways channel any credit card information so it’s no where recorded in our websites.

Kudos to the efforts of this cause on Techplomacy as we watch the next steps in this evolution.

The dreams behind Alexandria

You, the dream
You, the dream
A global company reaching people’s lives globally by compassionate understanding of behavior, networks, spreading educational sustainability and wireless technology is what keeps me working through the nights. Money has never been the prime motivator in my passions through the years. It was always connecting through people’s lives, the belief that even the poorest can have a good life and that there is always a solution to change the present towards the future was the triggering hormone always in my system. Even as a kid in elementary school, I had been always accelerated in school as teachers thought that I was too knowledgeable to know things on my age.

For some reason, in my special skill to predict and forecast especially how the financial markets would be was some kind of third sense for me. But just the same, the question was always why does social inequality and economics affect a lot of people’s lives just because one was poor, lacking in education, did not have the tools or training they needed to succeed?

So one day while reading a book by Napoleon Hill’s, Think and Grow Rich followed by playing with my IBM and DOS computer thinking about Bill Gates, I simply said why can’t we have a device that had book stories with the ability to be a scientific calculator while connecting with my friends anywhere while we were exploring the 9 planets to pluto. Suddenly, my heavy micro flip flop sony ericsson phone rang asking if I had already check the compuserve email about the article I just submitted with the school organ’s editor in chief.

Due to my lack of electrical knowledge on the positive and negative wirings for the lamp shade project short circuited the entire fuse box of the physical education building. The mistake was I was not following the correct instructions from my science teacher as if I just followed what my cousin Noel was doing with his lamp project.

I was always fascinated with science and technology, history, social studies but despise my math teacher as what was the calculator for if I had to use the longer written math? Yet, mom made me open a savings accounts for P1.00 with home savings bank which I gradually enjoyed putting a little of my remaining allowances later and the profit from the candies sold.

Believe it or not, weird as it may seem all these factors contributed to what I really wanted to achieve when I was being a little techie. But then so many things happen later, they were so fast I saw myself later on at 19 being a President of an Export Trade Association trading christmas decor ornaments, went to ribbons, travelled extensively, made money and fame and still fascinated with technology.

Then suddenly, I remembered it must be a mere hunger as again I had skept dinner and homeless in a park by Vancouver, B.C. in 1996. This was the idea and the fascination dream to continue that quest in spite even of the failures and mistakes that still got me inspired to one day go back to trading books while connecting with friends and still trending and forecasting.

A New Emerging Venture – Collaborative Technology using Alexandria

User-friendliness, understanding individual pyschological wants and needs, and a human experience interface are some of the components for Alexandria.

The new said killer application is still in final development but surely this platform will revolutionalized digital imaging and collaborative wireless technologies.  Interestingly like a widget, enticing like an emoticon but financially sharp, witty, intelligently social and thinking like a human being while seeing a snapshot of space is what this new gear would be.   

I will then leave it to the nerds, the scientist and the venture capitalists to keep their minds until they finally meet this application in due time.

Hopefully, when the platforms are ready for testing the smart pioneering investors will have already leverage being a huge part in it’s inception.

Online collaboration, a snapshot of the 22nd century

What does the world want today?  From mergers and acquisitions foiling up, bail-out’s, people’s lives and emotions at stake.  All after the global recession of 2008, much greater than 1987 and 1998 combined and almost similar to the great depression of 1929.

With economists over smart and briliant forecasters and indicators what seems to be left behind to look for hope, faith and the future of the technological revolution?

As my colleques at the famous Institute of Electrical and  Electronics Engineers say maybe this is the next phase of analytics engine, search and advertising technology.

With big stalwarts of the corporate industrial age finds solutions in bestowing the might of a once magnificent empire, the new breed of emerging silicon valley giants with Trade Vibes.com seems to be concentrating on the relevace of human emotion, social networking and online collaborative technology.

Even the bigwigs of paid, search and blogsvertising phenomenons seems to be turning towards new content, current events and social responsibility as a way towards the green phenomenon of sustainability.

In the silicon valley arena there seems to be a flare for perfection as investors unhold their major shares with the valleywags towards angel and seed capital to micro start-ups that have lately been noticed by the insiders.

The battle on search algorithms and desktops integrations has began personalizing collaborative feeds and complete content than the usual stand alone search technology.

As widgets and CSS theme with RSS feeds and podcasting are embeeded to media centered video’s and music it seems that the way to make the sale is to seek a deeper understanding of the predictabiity of the human emotion.

As we unload the corrections of wrong investment strategies focused on self greed and ambition, the online syndication has finally made it’s way as a daily gadget of human existence.

As the new frontier of sophisticated VOIP’s protocols,  are integrated to emailing and surfing, a more predominant personal engagement to family and friends in any part of the world seems to be a new trend of collaboration.

So as Archie is one again reborn, content with advertising, search and networking will be the new rulers of silicon valley.
